Museums with open hearth cooking demonstrations

Carroll County Farm Museum in Westminster, Maryland. To bake, fry and boil I used the reflector oven, dutch ovens, spider and pots.

Since the Covid lockdown has been lifted quite a few museums are doing demos, so check for days and times. One museum - with two working hearths - has been sold as a private home.
